I have been going to this restaurant since Nov 1997 & the service Is always spot on. As a matter of fact I wish they would train the employees of other restaurants as to how a customer should be waited on. I went this past Sunday nt & returned again Thursday afternoon. Sunday I had the Chicken Fajita salad &... More

I've been coming to Molly's for over a decade. I love their yellow cheese dip. The food is excellent and the staff is always friendly.

Molly's is one of those Mexican restaurants that puts very little filling in the tortilla, and hopes the customer doesn't notice. My sisters and I went for lunch and paid $8.25 each for chicken fajita quesadillas. Pricey, considering it doesn't come with rice or beans. It also didn't really come with chicken either! After three bites, I pulled the quesadilla... More

A Memphis midtown gem....absolutely the most fabulous bean burrito and queso around. I have been several times and each time I leave I look forward to returning. Atmosphere is laid back, friendly, a local hangout for sure but one that should not be missed if visiting Memphis. Forget the BBQ joints......do this instead. I love the history of the restaurant...

We are new to Memphis area & stumbled upon Molly's & have dined there twice. Wonderful hole in the wall feel - with super friendly & attentive staff. Our waiter last night has worked there for over 12 years, and that speaks volumes. Food is delicious - must have their bean dip! And the portions are generous. Mix of couples,... More

Molly's La Casita offers a variety of food selections - appetizers, quesadillas, fajitas, chimichangas, enchiladas, and other Mexican delicacies. Their Margaritas are fresh, very good and award-winning. Tasty, fresh food. Very good chips and salsa. Friendly staff and attentive service. A busy place, but the hostess located right inside and close to the rear of the restaurant (so you have... More

They have 5$ margaritas on happy hour and that is enough for me for a day. I get that and some chips and salsa and I always make the mistake of getting a second drink. Delicious food- vegetarian tamales which are rare to find.

My husband and I went to Molly's on a Friday night and there was a 25 minute wait. Food was excellent! I had the fish tacos and he had chicken and rice with queso. We also loved the queso flamedos! But the highlight for me was the half and half margarita - half frozen and half regular. YUMMMMMM!

This was our first trip to Molly's and will not be our last! I enjoyed the flautas and my husband had the chicken chimichanga. They were both amazing! The salsa was great and served with thick chips so you could load them up : ) Our waitress was extremely professional and friendly. Service was prompt. Plan for a bit of... More
